A California TowBoatUS company was singled out for its professionalism at the annual BoatUS Towing Services conference in Jupiter, Fla.

Tower of the Year honors went to TowBoatUS Catalina, which is owned and operated by Capts. Nathan Lins, Jordan Lake and Greg Dreischmeyer.

The company, a familiar site in Avalon Harbor and Catalina Island waters with three red response vessels, was recognized for near perfect 24-hour towing dispatch operation, superior customer service and satisfaction, towing case management and its work in the local boating community.

Formerly known as Vessel Assist Catalina, the red towboats in all of the former West Coast Vessel Assist locations in California, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii and British Columbia, Canada, were recently rebranded TowBoatUS. Other than the name change, boaters can still see the familiar BoatUS buoy logo on the hull and captains at the helm.
